Japan Junior Figure Skating Championships[edit]

The 2007–2008 Japan Junior Figure Skating Championships took place in Sendai between November 24 and 25, 2007.

The following skaters placed high enough at Novice Nationals to be invited to compete here: Yuzuru Hanyu (1st in Novice, 3rd in Junior), Keiji Tanaka (second in Novice, 8th in Junior), and Ryuju Hino (third in novice, 10th in Junior) in men. In ladies, it was Roanna-Sari Oshikawa (1st in novice, 25 in juniors), Yukiko Fujisawa (second in novice, 19th in juniors), and Miho Sasaki (third in novice, 14th in juniors).

Although normally under the rules, a podium finish in the men's event on the Junior level would bring an invitation to compete at the senior level, twelve-year-old Hanyu was not able to be invited due to his age and skating level. Yukihiro Yoshida was therefore invited instead. Hanyu is also not listed as an alternate to Junior Worlds because he is not old enough to attend that competition.

Ayane Nakamura withdrew before the competition.
